Yes, it should touch your thighs - slide up them more like. Below the knees, the bar doesn't need to be in contact... but it should be extremely close if it's not. Once you pass the knees, it really needs to come in, and by the time it reaches mid-thigh, it sjhould be sliding up the thighs (not dragging).
